Description

Join this live walking tour to explore the heart of Korea! We will start at the Gwanghwamun Square, known as 'Make the world brighter' Square. It is named after Gwanghwamun Gate which is the main gate of the Royal Palace of Chosun. During the Chosun Dynasty, the square was used as a Government Plaza, and nowadays it is a symbolic place for Korean democracy. 

Then we will visit the Gyeongbokgung Royal Palace, built in 1394 when Chosun Dynasty moved its capital city from Kaesong to Seoul.
